  1. Hi all, any help would be appreciated.

    Using Windows 2000 Professinal SP4. I have beenusing a Lexar Jumpro flash with no problems for a while now. Suddenly today it no longer is recognized by the system. With the Device Manager showing, I insert the flash, the Device Manager window goes blank with an hourglass spinning. It will stay like this indefinitely. When I try clicking on the "Unplug or Eject Hardware" icon in the Task Bar lower left of my screen nothing happens. When I finally pull the USB flash the system comes alive again - meaning the Device Manager window refreshes and the Warning message about pulling a USB Mass Storage Device without first stopping it.

    you probably static-shocked the usb drive, thus destroying it and hanging your system.
